oral history project is part of the NYPL Community Oral History Project. This
project will collect oral histories of people who have lived or worked in Kips
Bay neighborhood and train community members to conduct these interviews. Current, previous, and longtime residents and
those who have worked in the Kips Bay are invited to share their neighborhood
stories, documenting the past and present history of these communities. Interviews will be available in a preservation
archive at The Milstein Division for U.S. History, Local History, and
Genealogy, as well as on the New York Public Library website.
